We operate as a waste transfer station for the recycling of wood, metal, plastic, paper & cardboard, green waste and asbestos.

On arrival at our site the full skip is weighed on our weigh bridge. Depending on the type of waste to be sorted the driver will then be directed to one of our waste segregation bays to tip their waste.

Once the waste is tipped, it is then transferred to our picking line where it is sorted by hand before passing through our tromell and magnet. The tromell and magnet remove any metals and hardcore that has not been removed by hand. It is then manually sorted again before being balled and transported to be made into something new.

We sort for recycling green waste, wood, metal, soil & hardcore, plastic and general waste. We also accept Hazardous wastes including Asbestos
